Ladd Seed Corn Planter Box 

I collect memorabilia from my hometown of Ladd, Ill. I recently purchased a seed corn planter box manufactured in Ladd, Ill. The person I purchased it from told me it was found in Iowa. The cast iron lid reads: “THE LAD / LADD MFG CO / LADD ILL.” I have done numerous searches on the Internet, but I haven’t found much information other than the fact that the company was in business in the early 1920s. Does anyone know anything about the Ladd Co., or have pieces from that manufacturer in their collections?
